Description


Doctor Houseplant provides all you need to know about the maintenance and care of your favorite houseplants.

Introduce gorgeous greenery into your apartment or home with houseplants. As well as being affordable and easy to transport if you move, nothing helps more to instantly create a lively and inviting interior than houseplants. You can start small and build a plant collection as your confidence develops.

To care for your collection, you’ll need to take into consideration every plant’s individual needs. While some plants are easy to care for—particularly cacti, succulents, and snake plants (Sansevieria trifasciata)—some of the most spectacular may need a little extra love.

This comprehensive guide to houseplants covers 42 of the most popular houseplants, with all the information you need to help them thrive, including ideal conditions and common concerns, as well as the plant’s common names and the varieties available.

  • Choosing and buying
  • Watering and feeding
  • Light and position
  • Compost and potting
  • Dealing with pests and diseases
  • Solutions tailored by symptoms
